For $4 million, you can own a piece of Atlanta history.

The Atlanta Ballet’s birthplace, as well as the personal home and studio of the Ballet’s founder, Dorothy Alexander, is up for sale.

Located at 9 Ansley Drive, the historic home has over 7,000 square feet of beautifully finished indoor and outdoor living space, abundant sunlight and soaring ceilings.

This home has undergone several stunning transformations since it was built in 1916, the most recent involving Atlanta architect Bill Litchfield and contractor Mike Hammersmith. Both are responsible for modernizing this classic home, while John Howard of Howard Design Studio LLC was brought in to design the home’s incredible landscaping.

Additional features include plenty of work from home space, an elegant kitchen with views of the breakfast and family rooms, six bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms, two screened-in porches, a large and private yard and a light-filled bonus space that was the home of the ballet’s first dance studio.

The heart of the city is just steps away from the home’s convenient location in Ansley Park. The Atlanta Botanical Gardens, Piedmont Park, the BeltLine, Colony Square, the High Museum and many other attractions are all nearby.
